“All the time while I’m mess­ing around with sounds, I’ll have SoundForge run­ning in the back­ground, record­ing the com­puter out­put, cap­tur­ing ev­ery­thing I’m do­ing. Then, once I’ve fin­ished mess­ing around, I’ll stop SoundForge record­ing, and take a break to dis­con­nect my­self from the ses­sion. Then I’ll come back later, scan through the wave­form, pick the best bits, then save them to my folder. Then I’ve got new, fresh, sounds – like us­ing home­made in­gre­di­ents to make a pie! And when you’re writ­ing another track, you can scan through and find new bits from pre­vi­ous tracks. Only then will I sit down and start writ­ing the ac­tual mu­sic! I know it’s time to start writ­ing a track when I feel re­ally ex­cited and buzzing, and I’m like: “Holy crap, I can’t wait to use that sound I made!” And I re­ally want to get all these sounds into the tune – they get my juices flow­ing!”
